Eric Krasno

Founding member and guitarist of Soulive and Lettuce, Eric Krasno is known throughout jazz, funk, and hip-hop circles, working with Joshua Redman, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Chaka Khan, 50-Cent, GZA and Talib Kweli.

Since forming Soulive in 1999, Krasno has toured the globe spanning small rock clubs to major festivals in Africa, Japan, Russia, Brazil, and more. With releases on Velour Recordings, Blue Note, Stax and his own Royal Family Records, and a resume that includes opening spots for the Rolling Stones and Dave Matthews Band, it's little wonder Soulive has developed a reputation as one of the most celebrated instrumental soul-funk trios in the world.

Krasno is taking his 15-plus-year career in a new direction with his first solo record, "Reminisce". He'll take the music of Reminisce on the road with his new band, Chapter 2, featuring Krasno on guitar and vocals, Nigel Hall on vocals and keys, Adam Deitch on drums, and Louis Cato on bass and vocals. With guest appearances from luminaries such as Derek Trucks, Questlove, Warren Haynes and George Porter Jr., Chapter 2 is a band to be seen and heard.
